There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr Cush doesn't spend a lot of time with me, but he uses it well. He's clear, concise and direct. I feel informed and confident in him. No doctor ever worked harder to help a patient. He and his team are first rate.

also depends on my outcome

He was fabulous! He took his time and genuinely seemed to care about me. I have had a number of people try to help me with my foot issue, but he was the first one to really seem to want to help me.

provider was very arrogant, not very friendly. almost seemed angry he didn't spend much time explaining anything or have any knowledge of what prior treatment or diagnosis I had received . I would not recommend this provider to anyone and would not use. this Dr. Kush again.
Dec 14, 2016
Dr. was too busy to spend much time or as much time as he wanted to because of the number of patient he had to see on the day of my appt.
Dec 7, 2016
this is the second surgery that I've had done here and DR Cush is the best.
Nov 23, 2016
I cannot praise Dr. Cush enough. He and his team saved my foot. He didn't really spend that much time talking with me, but he used that time very efficiently. He was very direct and gave very clear explanations of me problem and how he was going to treat it. He made me feel confident that he had a plan and that it was achievable. He has an incredible team who are competent, efficient and caring. That's why he really didn't have to spend all that much time with me. Best group I've ever dealt with.

one of the most friendliness doctors I have had
Oct 5, 2016
The PA, Laura, spent some time with me but like I stated earlier, Dr.Cush was only in the room about 3 minutes.
Oct 4, 2016
dr Cush is wonderful
Sep 28, 2016
I was thrilled with my appointment with Dr Cush. He explained the procedure that he is going to do. He explained what to expect after my surgery. I am completely satisfied with my experience with Dr Cush.
Sep 28, 2016
My appt was scheduled with Dr G. Cush. His PA spent time gathering info regarding my health concern but assured me that the Dr would handle my appt. When Dr Cush arrived in my exam room, late by nearly an hour after my scheduled appt time, he literally spent less than 2 minutes total with me. I felt rushed and dismissed. His PA and nurse did come back in after the Dr exited to talk about treatment & care.
Sep 13, 2016
PA was extremely helpful in explaining my course of action
Aug 31, 2016
dr Cush took time to explain the different procedures we discussed. I did not feel pressured to make a decision quickly bhe answered my questions and Stephanie was fantastic. I have the greatest confidence in his team
Aug 31, 2016
he was intelligent and professional. he was easy to talk to and seemed to genuinely care about my situation.
Aug 10, 2016
Didn't need any medication on follow up.
Jul 6, 2016
Dr. Cush provided a thorough and comprehensive review of all information and answered all my questions and concerns. His bedside manner made me feel comfortable in the situation and I appreciated his expertise in this matter.
June 29, 2016
I like doctor even immensely. He's tolerant, caring and interested in his client; however, I do wish he'd smile occasionally.
June 29, 2016
Dr. Kush was an excellent communicator as for the most part was just nursing support staff. However we reiterate that written instructions would be much preferable to verbal instructions which could be forgotten or misconstrued.
June 8, 2016
This was actually my last follow-up appointment after intake, surgery and follow-up, so short and to the point - especially to get me out on time. Previously between Dr. Cush, residents and nurse, very satisfied with my care and time spent adequate.

none

I mainly spoke with the PA (Stephanie) and she was great.
Apr 6, 2016
I already have.
Apr 6, 2016
have already given recommendation to others

Dr. Gerard Cush and PA Stephanie Wolfe both saw me. They were both extremely helpful and showed compassion. They both used language that was easy to understand and showed x-rays that helped this visual learner see what was being explained.
